    Just drop the oil pan. It's not hard. A bunch of 10mm bolts and it falls down. I've had good luck reusing the old pan gasket. Just clean it up good with brake cleaner. Then you can look for chunks oh cvt in the bottom of the pan.

    I changed cvt fluid in a 14' murano. The oil that was in it looked brown on the stick and looked red almost like atf when draining it. I just filled it back up with the same universal stuff I use on the Mirage's and other Nissans.

    Yeah I wasn't sure if I should drop the pan because I don't have a new pan gasket. But it would be a good idea to drop it I guess to see if there's any metal in there and maximize the amount of oil I dump out.

    Do you use a torque wrench when putting the bolts back in? If you do what settings in lbs? Thanks

    Just go in a criss cross pattern and don't use an impact set on kill mode. They will snap. If in doubt use a 1/4 drive ratchet and tighten down pretty snug. You should get an extra liter/quart or drained by dropping the pan.
    Someone in a white lab coat might be able to find you the torque specs
